"We lived with our grandparents in Nagano, Japan for a short time in 1995. My two younger brothers and I went to pre-school and learned to speak Japanese at home. Mom was expecting our youngest brother and dad was working at the construction sites. Though it was a really busy time for our parents, we were always surrounded with so much love from our grandparents, aunts and uncles, and cousins. The best memories of our childhood was the outings we had in the summer times and watching the festivals of the little town of Iiyama."
